Your post makes no sense.
Did your problem start immediately after you attempted to enable HD video? The answer is either yes or no.
Edit: No, the problem wasn't immediate. The reinstall could've caused it, but I'm not certain. I just know that I've reinstalled the softmod a couple times before on my 80 Gig and there wasn't any problems. This problem occurred recently on my 500 GB sata. I've only done one uninstall and reinstall on the 500 GB before the problem occurred, so it could be possible. It wasn't immediate.
The reason it may not make any sense is because like I said in an above post, I thought it was a simple software fix first, but now I see that's not how the software works. There isn't a simple config file. After I left here, I started of thinking about other problems it could be as I keep checking with my Xbox.
I would google things like "black screen" and "dashboard only boots on eject" and after a while, the sata drive thing popped up in my head and I started mixing the words in the google search. It led me to that link I posted above and I have been reading it. So far, it seems like the closest thing to my problems and the black screen because the mod does
work - it just won't fully boot by only
power button. It 'will' fully boot by the eject button and that's something I don't like to do.
So, to shorten things:
First, I thought it was a simple software fix and that I was maybe missing something I didn't know about. I have done the repairs and the reinstalls before I came to ask for help on the situation. The only thing I didn't do is reclone from my 80 GB drive again because I have done too much with this 500 GB currently to lose it.
Second, I didn't stop looking for a solution to the problem after I left here and I kept searching online for different things that may relate and came across a post where some of the guys were talking about the same issue as me (not booting on time, black screen, etc). Since it is the closest to my issue so far, I'm leaning more towards it now as people have reported after time has passed with a sata drive, they have started seeing late boots and even error codes. It could be caused by the sata-to-ide adapters we use. I'm still looking for a conclusion.This post has been edited by ceaseless: Sep 2 2011, 08:48 AM
